A Mild Week Ahead and Possibly A New Record Thursday

Sunday Evening 4cast

From ABC6 Meteorologist Bill Gile


A decent sized storm will move off the Carolina coast overnight and remain well south of the region as it passes further out to sea Monday. However, the high clouds that came in during the day today are the outer fringes of this system and it will just clip the south coast and the Cape with a little bit of light rain shower activity overnight, but that’s about it and the threat should be over with by daybreak.

Another very weak disturbance crosses RI toward Midnight Monday night with a brief rain shower/sprinkle or flurry, lasting about an hour. No road impacts are expected as temperatures will be above freezing as it happens.

High pressure then builds across the east coast for early next week allowing for a nice Valentine’s Day and then becomes more of a summer-like ‘Bermuda’ High that draws up more warm air from the south for the second half of the week. As it does so, more record high temperatures look to be challenged Thursday and/or Friday with no significant storms in sight.


TONIGHT:  cloudy with a threat of a rain shower along the south coast. Lows in the mid 30s.

MONDAY: breezy, a good deal of clouds. Highs in the mid 40s. Winds N at 10-18 MPH.

MONDAY NIGHT: cloudy with a brief rain shower or flurry passing through around Midnight. Lows 32-36.

TUESDAY: sunshine for the most part, a bit milder. Highs in the upper 40s.

WEDNESDAY: more sun than clouds with highs in the lows 50s.

THURSDAY:  Mainly sunny and perhaps setting a new record high. Right now, I’m looking for a high near 62° that would beat the current record of 60° (1910)!
